Experience gained with feeding routines in the parlour has strongly influenced this complex design of manger partition and trough. The manger trough has an angled front face for cows to lick against which ensures a quicker feed intake resulting in improved performance.
The angled panel helps align cows into their correct milking position, The longer bend on the front of the manger panel allows the cows to lift their heads and turn unobstructed, creating a faster exit when finished milking, With the “zig zag” shape of the manger system, cows’ front legs fit more comfortably, The manger panel positioned either side of the cow helps prevent against poaching by other cows .These in turn gives a more comfortable, stress free environment in the milking parlour.
The cleaning of the cow stand areas can be done more efficiently due to the manger system being wall mounted. Drains can be created under the mangers and away from the cow’s front hoofs.
